First Destination

The Beautiful Vancouver

I have now arrived in the city of Vancouver known as one of the most beautiful places in the world.
This city offers mountains, sparkling ocean waters, rainforests and incredicble scenery.

During my two night, three day stay in Vancouver, I will first visit the famous Stanley Park. This park was designated a national historic site of Canada and offers tourist and locals a long list of things to see and do. The mountains, beaches, trails, historical landmarks such as totem poles, local wildlife and more all mark this park such a huge attraction.

The next place I will be visiting is the Capilano Suspension Bridge. This bridge attracts over 800,000 visitors a year. It is 460 feet long and 230 feet high above the Capilano River! It was built in 1889, then completely rebuilt in 1956 and Is suspended only between old Douglas Fir trees.

On my last day in Vancouver, I'll be going to a well known place that attracts over 1.2 million visitors per year; Grouse Mountain. I will take the famous Grouse Mountain Skyride. The gondola climbs 3,700 feet above sea level and the view is guaranteed to leave you speechless. You'll be up above the mountain peeks looking down at the Pacific Ocean, islands and the city of Vancouver from a whole new angle.

During my stay in this wonderful city I'll be resting my head at night in the 4 star Georgian Court Hotel.
Per night the cost of this hotel is $225, which will bring my total to $450.
